Product Description
The Silkpaint! company has specialized in this resist for years, and it shows. It has a lot of uses and advantages:
  • Paint while resist is still wet!
  • Add dyes to make colored resists.
  • Use as a stop-flow when thinned with water.
  • Steamable, or can be used with fixatives (painted on).
  • Remove with cool water!
  • No fumes, non-toxic!

For a water based resist, this one holds the lines pretty well. We used to get reports of it being more difficult to remove when steamed, but not lately as they have improved it even more. This one is nice because you can get it in quarts too.

Note: This resist is steamable, but even so, if the resist is subjected to the prolonged high heat of steam-setting it changes the composition of the resist and can make it really stick to the silk and hard to wash out. The best thing you can do at this point is GENTLY scrub with a SOFT toothbrush over the lines during the washing. It doesn't always work. If you use silk dyes and don't want to deal with resist being hard to wash out you can use solvent-based gutta and dry clean it out, or use colored water-based resists that you leave on the fabric. Water-based resist does wash out easily if you use a silk paint rather than a silk dye because the paints only require ironing to heat-set.

DO NOT uses Silkpaint resist if you are steaming your silk! I got this resist mixed up with my Sennelier Aqua Gutta (love it) resist. After steaming Silkpaint resist would NOT come out of the pieces! I tried everything: soaking scrubbing with a soft brush even took the pieces to the dry cleaners. They tried several ways to get it out and it wouldn't come out. I now have big fat labels on my resist bottles WARNING me NOT to steam Silkpaint resist!

I work with Ugandan women who use the Resist to make designs on silk scarves they are painting. The Resist is extremely easy to use. There is no product waste and no mess to clean up. It washes out of the fabric quite easily in the end so the fabric feels smooth and silky once again.

Just bought this to compare to 2 other resistsgutta I bought at the same time. So far this brand is holding the line very well. I use a metal tip #5 and mix in color dyes to get the color I want and I am very pleased with the results. Not as runny as the Jacquard American Gutta Black (black is more like grey)and similar to the "old" Jacquard Clear Water Based Resist. The 4 oz. bottle comes with the easy to pour tip.

I really want to like this resist but it is way too difficult to remove after steaming.

This didn't work for me at least not for my application. I was looking for a resist to use on cotton with sprayed fabric paint. This resist turned out spotty and uneven. . . . might be terrific with silk though.

I'm STILL trying to get this stuff four after repeated washings of the pieces where I used it. And it didn't even do that good a job as a resist! I do not do not recommend it!

After using another water-soluable resist for years it started coming in very poor condition with crystals and hard lumps like the bottom of the barrel had been scraped. So I have just tried this and so far so good. At least the consistancy is smoother!
